Harry Gross: Keep that credit safe

Dear Harry: I recently received a letter from Countrywide Mortgage telling me that my mortgage files were compromised. Apparently, someone in their company was selling information. Countrywide has offered to give me two years of credit-monitoring free. Is there something else I should do? I do have a very good credit score, and I sure don't want that hurt in any way. Should I get a lawyer and go after them?
